Army loses "a battalion" a year to drugs
Fri Dec 14, 2007 11:43am


By Andrew Hough

LONDON (Reuters) - The Army, fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, is losing the
equivalent resources of more than one battalion (500-600 soldiers) a year as
a result of illegal drug use, researchers said on Friday.

This was more than the number of fatalities and serious casualties in both
conflicts and may be a reflection of combat stress, the Medical Research
Council Biostatistics Unit said.

Analysis of figures from the Ministry of Defence by the body, which was
published in the Journal of the Royal United Services Institute, found there
had been a four-fold increase in soldiers testing positive for cocaine.

It said figures showed positive tests for illegal substances in the British
Army rose to 769 in 2006 from nearly 520 in 2003.

The unit said this was the equivalent of losing more than one battalion a
year to drug use. The MOD said drug taking in the army was not widespread.

But, Professor Sheila Bird, a senior scientist at the unit, warned the trend
could be on rise.

"What is worrying from our study ... is the sharp increase in the proportion
of soldiers testing positive for cocaine, a sharper increase than in 16-24
year olds in society at large," she said in a statement.

"The interim period coincides with major combats in both Afghanistan and
Iraq and there is natural concern that the rise in cocaine use may be a
direct result of increased combat stress. This could just be the tip of the
iceberg."

An MOD spokesman rejected the assertion that drug use was rife. He said
positive detection over the past four years averaged 0.77 per cent compared
with almost 10 per cent in other "civilian workplaces".

"Drug misuse is not widespread in the Armed Forces," he said. "Drug misuse
is incompatible with service life and is not tolerated. The increase in
individuals testing positive for cocaine is a reflection of society as a
whole."

He said that the MOD has compulsory drug testing to "reinforce the message
that drug use is unacceptable".

And besides, Alex, how is a soldier "lost" because he uses cocaine as
a stimulant in combat? Throughout the Korean War the military gave
troops in combat the stimulant benzadrine to sharpen their edge by
fighting prolonged fatigue. I see no reason to doubt that that's being
done today. The need is the same. What's unacceptable is illicit
drugs, not official military drugs.

You are not getting the point at all. This plane which is based in Ft.
Lauderdale Florida was used to rendition people to ountries where they could
be tortured.

This same plane was used to smuggle drugs into United States. Add two and
two together and you get that CIA is involved in both torture and drug
smuggling operation.

You would do well to click on the video link and see the actual scene. But
do not worry this will all be covered up and nobody will go to jail!

It's not the first time the CIA has been caught smuggling drugs. There
were the revelations of the Iran-Contra flap, and then there's all the
ties between the CIA and the Mafia. They run drugs to the inner cities
to keep the people "destabilized," and disorganized.

That could be true but it doesn't necessarily follow as a matter of
logic. The fact that the "Company" MAY have used the jet for
"rendition" flights several years ago does not mean that it owns the
aircraft. It could have been leased or chartered. The web site records
Donna Blue Aviation, Inc., as the "operator". Who are they? And
operator doesn't mean owner either. You've got to show more than this
to make the case you see as easy as putting two and two together. I
also don't see the CIA connection to this plane as proved. The voice-
over in the video mentions it but seems to assume everyone accepts the
truth of the matter. Of course I may have missed these connections
you've made out. Help us here.

I don't see what's to cover up. A plane was allegedly used for
rendition. Now two years later it's used for drug smuggling. You've
got to tie a lot more together than that to make a case against the
American government for smuggling.
